    1. The Match Factory Girl (Kaurismäki)
    2. Larks on a String (Menzel)
    3. I Hired a Contract Killer (Kaurismäki)
    4. Days of Being Wild (Wong)
    5. Close-Up (Kiarostami)
    6. A Tale of Spingtime (Rohmer)
    7. S'en fout la mort (Denis)
    8. Edward Scissorhands (Burton)
    9. Boiling Point (Kitano)
    10. Godfellas (Scorsese)

    I ended up watching four films for this poll, and they were all pretty good viewings. Metropolitan was close to get into my ballot, but I also enjoyed the mortuary The Sting of Death (Kohei Oguri), the poetic Siddheshwari (Mani Kaul) and the vampiric King of New York (Abel Ferrara).

    1- Metropolitan
    2- The Godfather Part III
    3- Larks on a String
    4- Daddy Nostalgie
    5- Alice
    6- Innisfree
    7- Edward Scissorhands
    8- A Tale of Springtime
    9- Freeze, Die, Come to Life
    10- Back to the Future Part III

    Goodfellas and Miller's Crossing are in my real Top 10, but I'm not as crazy about them as most are, and since I had not real horse in the race until I saw Metropolitan, and since I knew they'd have no trouble winning (for Goodfellas) and getting into the Top 10 (for Miller's Crossing) I decided to have a little fun with my ballot, supressing those two and supporting one of pingy's faves that I also love and consider to be underrated. Between Gremlins 2 and BTTF III, I went with the later because I thought Gremlins 2 had guaranteed a Top 30 placement... Sorry, pingy! (but it's more Morgana's fault, who forgot to vote, I was counting on her as part of what guaranteed Gremlins 2 a placement!).

    Thank you for so much

    I guess I'm the only Dances with Wolves fan in here, or the only one who will admit to it
    Dances with Wolves was my #2 pick! SO pumped it made the Top 10 on here!!

    I did see the Wong, but I also left a bit cold out of it. I was mostly enamoured by the first half of it, and yeah, the notion of time, and the bird saying (but still a blueprint to how brilliant he would become with Happy Together and specially In The Mood for Love)

    Ju Dou was for me more consistent. Sry @Hardys

    Quite a surprising result overall, except for #1.

    Aaaww, BTTF III.
    I did vote for Gremlins II.
    And I like Dances with Wolfes a lot, but forgot to vote for it.
    You came from nothing, you'll go back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!
